Around 15,000 bank cheques with a face value of Rs 22 crore, obtained by the Vishva Hindu Parishad for the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya, have bounced. According to an audit report of Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra, a trust set up by the Centre for the formation of the temple, the cheques bounced due to scarcity of funds in bank accounts or some technical error.


Solution to Technical Issues

Trust member Dr. Anil Mishra said that banks are working towards solving the issue of technical errors and they are requesting people to make donations again. Among the cheques, around 2,000 were received from Ayodhya. The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) had collected donations during a countrywide campaign between January 15 and February 17. Around Rs, 5,000 crores were collected during the drive, although the final figures are yet to be announced by the trust.


Collection of Funds

At the beginning of December 2020, the General Secretary of the temple trust had said that the temple in Ayodhya will be built using domestic funds collected from the public through a mass contact program as its trust doesn't have needed approvals for accepting donations from abroad. Champat Rai had then said that the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Shetra was going to start the mass contact and contribution campaign across the country for the construction of the temple. He had said, "Voluntary donations from Rambhakts will be accepted for which coupons of Rs 10, Rs 100, and Rs 1,000 will be made available."
